DENVER -- The home of the Super Bowl 50 champions converted Thursday into an arena for veterans seeking jobs. 

Recruit Military paired up with organizers at Sports Authority Field at Mile High to connect veterans in the Denver area with employers looking for a specific set of skills. 

Ahead of the 11 a.m. event -- which ends at 3 p.m. -- nearly 600 former servicemen and women, including their spouses, had registered for the event. 

Any veteran or military spouse is encouraged to show up to the event, however, to interact with many of the big name employers which will be in attendance. 

Roughly 75 employers will have delegations on Thursday, including Aramark, Kroger, Lockheed Martin, Loomis, Home Depot, US Bank, US Customs and Border Protection and Walgreens.
